Our research efforts focus on designing new inorganic solid state functional materials for emerging applications in electronics, solid-state energy conversion and other areas. In this quest, we rely on rational design of solids through fundamental understanding of crystal structure/property relationships as well as empirical and theoretical models. We are particularly inspired by the challenges involved in developing design concepts for functional materials with conflicting or 'contraindicating' property requirements as seen in

thermoelectrics, multiferroics,

temperature independent

high K dielectrics and

materials exhibiting negative

thermal expansion.
